You were quite right.  I was dealing with a Nano that already had files
on it installed by iTunes.  Nothing that I could do, even as root, would
allow me to change the permissions of /mnt/ipod.  To make a long story
short, I cleared the Nano of all previously installed files, and started
from zero with gtkpod and now everything works smoothly.  I'm still not
sure why I wasn't able to change the permissions of the mounted Nano as
su, but I guess that is typical when dealing with mounted devices.
